Our Kakistocracy Under The Trump Administration
Well past 100 days in office, the President has not been able to proffer or pass a single legislation under his own party-controlled government. The only times President Trump’s pen was used was to enact minute changes through executive action. Usually executive actions are used as a prelude to enact legislation that would eventually turn into law, however, our swagger-lit president’s magnificence and splendor following the momentum of his political majority advantage has yet to sparkle, let alone kindle, and it seems it has all but fizzled with a dampened approval rating that dangles just below 40%.
Still, we wait for ‘the rockets red glare, and the bombs bursting in air’, — for the sparks to fly and the razzle-dazzle of the American dream via the American way — #MAGA to begin and illuminate our way in socioeconomic terms throughout this four year term.
Although we should keep our heads up, there is nothing to see. As we momentarily put our heads down to look at our phones at the President’s tweets it becomes clear how incompetent our leader truly is.

As rational people would see it, and as well as I see it, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was designed in an open-ended way for improvement, and many of the proposals that President Obama tried to pass was maliciously blocked by Congress in the subsequent years of the law’s enactment. These proposals that required budget approvals could still be implemented to improve the very few key issues that remain and that Obama himself has acknowledged. Do not infer that by budget it means wasteful spending. The budget proposals were stocked with investments that was aimed at reducing healthcare costs by supporting preventive care initiatives.
The expansion of access to healthcare insurance also proffer comprehensive and affordable coverage for beneficiaries that provided state budgets with some stability. In every aspect of the bill, there were healthcare reform proposals that either expand Medicaid; rein in on prescription costs; or that made efficient and wise use of taxpayer dollars to reduce wasteful spending.
Instead, resentment and idiocy within this presidency has blatantly put lives at risk in an attempt at erasure of the first black president and his legacy. There is no reason for me to mince words here, it is quite evident even from the outside looking in. Why would any rational thinking being be willing to forgo coverage and access for children and adults for that? Why would anyone support this?
President Trump has no idea of how healthcare works yet he knows how to undo anything President Obama has done for the citizens of this country. He did this by signing an executive orders state agencies to “waive, defer, grant exemptions from, or delay” any portions of the Affordable Care Act that creates financial burden on states, individuals or healthcare providers.
By repealing healthcare the marketplace would collapse and there would be an ensuing chaos caused by this political negative selection process in leadership for the country. That’s how this kakistocracy was intimated and the contempt that conceived it — “for the benefit of knaves at the cost of fools?”-Joel Benton.
